    Pros

    You work with the best talent in Silicon Valley. Catered food every night and cool hands on end product like Gopro.

    Cons

    Hard work. Start up environment. Stock based compensation in a down market.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the salary wages rising. The longer the wait for IPO the more stock that is vested and the less incentive stocks become.

    Pros

    You get to work on multiple areas. You will never get bored.

    Cons

    During crunch time, you are expected to work long and response to email late at night. No one tells to do so, but the atmosphere leads you to.

    Advice to Management

    Should support engineers to take courses at nearby colleges for personal development.

    Pros

    Good work culture. Engineers are very competent and hardworking. Mistakes don't get blamed on someone else.

    Cons

    Pay not on par with competitors. Stocks make up for some of it, but compensation overall is lacking, for the kind of talent and work expected.
